Lothar and the Hand People | Come Along: The Exodus 1966

The psychedelic garage-rock legends unleash a live album from their glory days.

314

THE PRESS RELEASE:Lothar And The Hand People emerged as one of the earliest pioneers to mix electronics into rock, incorporating theremin and synthesizers into their sonic onslaught. Led by Lothar (a theremin) and his cast of digit-possessing musicians wielding guitar, bass, drums, and one of the first (and largest) modular Moogs! This, their first-ever live album, captures them with the passion and energy that can only come from a band’s final show before Lothar was forever unplugged.”

MY TWO CENTS: Due to some really shitty circumstances that were totally beyond my control — and trust me, you truly don’t want to know — I had neither the time nor the brainpower to review albums this week. So consider this a recommendation, or a referral, or a heads-up, or whatever. That’s the best I can do right now. Regular programming will resume next week (assuming nothing even shittier happens). Thanks for your patience.
